Today in the News Media

Today in the News Media is a synopsis of some of the most prominent coverage of OSU people and programs. Inclusion of any item constitutes neither an endorsement nor a critique, but rather is intended only to make the OSU community aware of significant items in the media.

Independence for Oregon’s universities viewed as a success, so far (Oregonian)

Up Oregon 99W in Corvallis, Oregon State President Ed Ray said he was the last man in the state to support the idea of a new board. Ray, who worked for years as The Ohio State University’s provost before taking over in Corvallis in 2003, worried the system in Oregon would become “politicized.” He watched that happen in Ohio, where the trustees’ gig became a feather in the cap for big donors who pined for bowl game tickets and other perks. While it’s early, Ray said those concerns are so far unfounded. He said the university’s new board is so plugged into the minutiae and funding issues at OSU that he’s had to make sure he was up to date on little details of various projects and issues.

Ancient stone tools are ‘best’ evidence yet for early people of the Americas (Science)

Other archaeologists who study Paleoindians are impressed by the team’s rigor. When it comes to proving pre-Clovis occupation at a site, “the bar is still very high for me,” says Loren Davis, an archaeologist at Oregon State University, Corvallis, who wasn’t involved in the research.

‘I’ll Go With You’ button creates transgender allies in Oregon State University bathrooms, classrooms (Oregonian)

There’s a new button showing up on shirts and backpacks at Oregon State University with a hashtag and a simple phrase: “I’ll Go With You.” The button serves as a badge of support for transgender students and a call to make gender-specific bathrooms a more comfortable place for transgender and gender-nonconforming people.

Da Vinci Days returns with focus on Latino community, younger students (Gazette-Times)

Mexican folk dancers stomped their heals and cowboys rode horses in the courtyard outside of the Centro Cultural Cesar Chavez while a hundred feet away elementary students showed off their own computer games inside the Beth Ray Center. And just like that, the da Vinci Days Festival was back.

OSU, federal initiative may join forces to study microbiome (LIFE@OSU)

Researchers at OSU may play a significant role in a new, $121 million science initiative announced May 13 by the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy – a broad new national study of the microbiome, the communities of microorganisms that live on and in people, plants, soil, oceans and the atmosphere.

The White House launches the National Microbiome Initiative (The Atlantic)

Today, the White House is announcing the launch of the National Microbiome Initiative (NMI)—an ambitious plan to better understand the microbes that live in humans, other animals, crops, soils, oceans, and more. These miniscule organisms are attracting mammoth budgets: federal agencies are committing $121 million to the NMI over the next two years, while more than 100 universities, non-profits, and companies are chipping in another $400 million.

Top 20 U.S. robotics engineering schools in the U.S. (Grad School Hub)

4. Oregon State University. At Oregon State University, there are no exceptions or specializations necessary, and the College of Engineering takes a direct academic approach by offering two straightforward programs: a Master’s Degree in Robotics and a Doctorate Degree in Robotics. But don’t mistake this streamlined system as evidence of a lack of variety – far from it! Graduate students at OSU have the option to apply to a Ph.D., M.S., or M.Eng robotics engineering degree program, or even to take on a double major with a more traditional field like computer science. And although the university’s research program is similarly versatile, its pride and joy is the Robot Operating System. This “open-source framework for writing robot software” is the collective effort of hundreds of robotics experts – and is free to download.

Hazardous chemicals pose secret threat to Texas neighbors (Kansas City Star)

“There’s 1,200 chemical pesticides out there, and I’d put this one at the top of the list of things that scare me,” said Dave Stone, an environmental toxicologist and former director of the National Pesticide Information Center at Oregon State University. The A&M analysis does not measure the risk of an accident happening, where a problem is likely to occur or the safety of the operations at a given facility.

Hawaii is at risk of a devastating tsunami: Is the state prepared? (Tech Times)

Paleo-seismologist Chris Goldfinger of Oregon State University, who had confirmed in a past study that this can also happen in the Pacific Northwest, says the occurrence would be equivalent to five or six Hurricane Katrinas pouring down all at once.

Da Vinci Days resumes today (Register-Guard)

The first major event in the revived Da Vinci Days festival is today on the Oregon State University campus The festival, which featured limited events after its 25th anniversary in 2013 because of financial problems. is hosting “El Vecindario Creativo” (“The Creative Neighborhood”) from 2-6 p.m. at the Centro Cultural Cesar Chavez and the Beth Ray Center for Academic Success.

Spray season arrives with fewer planes in the air (Argus Observer)

Fewer than 10 percent of pesticide products used locally are being applied by plane, estimates Oregon State University extension office agent Bill Buhrig.

US lawmakers announce $70 million for renewable energy research (Eurasia Review)

Oregon’s Senators Jeff Merkley and Ron Wyden announced Friday that the Energy and Water Appropriations bill that passed the Senate this week includes $70 million for wave and geothermal energy research grants. Oregon State University (OSU), as a leader in wave and geothermal energy research, will be well-positioned to compete for these funds.

Birdhouses built to suit (Register-Guard)

According to the Oregon State University Extension Service, some 45 species of Oregon birds excavate nesting holes. Common cavity nesters are woodpeckers, swallows, chickadees, nuthatches, wrens, bluebirds and larger birds such as some ducks and owls.

Stripe rust detected early from Eastern Idaho to Eastern Oregon (Capital Press)

Stripe rust in wheat has been an intermittent problem in Eastern Oregon and the last two years it arrived late enough in the season that most growers decided not to treat for it, said Bill Buhrig, an Oregon State University Extension cropping systems agent.

Grapefruit: Health benefits & nutrition facts (Live Science)

“Vitamin C is plays a role in immunity and helps neutralize free radicals in our body,” said Rumsey. According to the Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University, vitamin C stimulates the production of white blood cells and may protect the integrity of immune cells. Vitamin C helps also protect leukocytes, which produces antiviral substances.
